Please call Governor Brown at (916) 445-2841 and ask him to veto these bills.
AB 711 (Rendon): Bans lead ammunition, which amounts to a ban on hunting in CA.
SB 374 (Steinberg): Bans the sale of semi-automatic rilfes.
AB 48 (Skinner): Would require that the Department of Justice alert local law enforcement entities if a purchaser obtains more than 6,000 rounds of ammunition within a seven-day period. This includes buying, giving, selling or receiving large capacity magazines.
SB 683 (Block): Expands California's handgun safety certificate requirement to apply to all firearms, and prohibits anyone from purchasing or transferring any firearm without a firearm safety certificate.
SB 299 (DeSaulnier): Makes it a crime if a victim of firearm theft does not report the theft within 48 hours.
AB 231 (Ting): Expands the law relating to the storage of firearms. This bill does nothing to reduce California's violent crime problem and only turn law-abiding gun owners into criminals whether or not anything harmful actually happens, and regardless of whether there was any misconduct on the part of the gun owner. Ultimately, AB 231 is a misguided proposal that imposes unprecedented liability on those who choose to exercies their fundamental right to keep and bear arms.
SB 567 (Jackson): Redefines shotguns to include any firearm that may be fired through a rifled bore or a smooth bore, regardless of whether it is designed to be fired from the shoulder. SB 567 also bans the sale of shotguns encompassed by the revised definitions that havea revolving cylinder, and requires registration of these currently owned shotguns.
As always, please contact my office with any questions (916) 319 - 2001. We cannot delay in trying to stop these bills from becoming law.
